What is NixOS?
NixOS is a Linux distribution with a unique approach to package and configuration management. Built on top of the Nix package manager, it is completely declarative, makes upgrading systems reliable, and has many other advantages.

I think NixOS is a very interesting and useful Linux system, but a bit difficult to handle, since it doesn’t work like any other Linux system. I.e. the installation to hard drive is very special, the file system is different and NixOS...

A Grub problem

Posted 04-13-2020 at 05:03 AM by malghwell
Tags grub, linux

By mistake, I deleted some of the snapshot which I recovered the /etc before I reboot. When I rebooted it comes to Grub screen and stopped there. The /boot directory is deleted but still there is another snapshot which contains the /boot. I could see the other boot directory but I don't know the Grub commands to boot from it. Once I boot I will recover back by copying it to the /boot but now I need to login. Any help?

Other tutorials will show you how to set this up with full blown PXE network booting. This How-To shows you how to set this up with just an nfs server. Compared to a full blown PXE netboot setup:

1) Server setup is simpler. Grub nfsroot only requires an nfs server. You do NOT need a tftp server, nor do you need a customized DHCP server.

Posted 04-26-2015 at 10:15 PM by mrknify

Today I installed Slackware via an sd card. It did not go smoothly.

Booted my LG x110 with the card, now my little netbook is my toy, I use it to install all manner of things before migrating them out. Previously I had installed two versions of Oz Unity on my netbook, they installed to duel boot with the netbooks Windows XP using grub. more recently I had been using Arch Linux via usb install to a SD card but that...
